from new mexico. mr. bingaman: mr. president, i'd ask that the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. bingaman: in 181, in his first inaugural address, president reagan said -- quote -- "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." i came to the senate two years later in 1983 with the firm belief that in most cases his statement was wrong. i believed then and i believe now that the federal government can be a constructive force for good in protecting and maintaining the civil liberties of all americans, in maintaining and strengthening our economy, in he can prosecuting our environment -- in protecting our environment and in helping americans live product tiffed and fulfilling lives. as i luke back over the last -- as i look back over the last 30 years, many of the arguments that have consumed our time here in the senate, whether on questions of spending or taxes or regulation or fiscal policy, those questions have divided between those who saw government as the problem and those who believed that it could an

most popular and respected members, senator jeff bingaman of new mexico. when jeff came to this body 30 years ago, he had already led a life of accomplishment created in small-town new mexico, silver city. he was an eagle scout, graduated from harvard college, stanford law school, where he met his future wife, ann. while at stanford, he worked in senator robert f. kennedy's campaign for president. at the age of 35, he was elected new mexico attorney general in 1978. and four years later at the age of 39, elected to the united states senate. during his three decades in this body, jeff bingaman has been a classic workhorse senator as opposed to being a show horse senator. he is truly remarkable and distinctive among senators for his willingness to shun the limelight and share the credit in order to get important things done for his state and for this country. senator bingaman has been a much valued colleague of mine on the health, education, labor and pensions committee, but he has really made his mark in the senate a lasting mark in his role as chair of the energy and natural resources c

as well. all of it revealed by a local tv station in new mexico, krqe-tv, the station reporting that a convicted killer doing time in prison recruited two men from new mexico to carry out the plot on his behalf. mark stack key was one of those hit men. he apparently tipped off the police himself who arrested him and his accomplice. there's stackye. his accomplice, tanner rain. rain had gardening sheers on his person, reportedly for the castration part of this plot. the plan was to kill him at madison square garden here in new york city. they were to strangle him using bow ties and dismember him. both men are in custody, as is dana martin who was serving a life sentence for the 2000 rape and murder of a young girl. martin is told to be obsessed to the point of having bieber's face tattooed on his leg. jon: anything about motive? i mean, just what was this all about? >> reporter: it seems that this guy who came up with the plot is obsessed with justin bieber. i mentioned the tattoo. he also has some weird thing with bow ties where he had used bow ties to kill victims in past crime

new mexico asks the senator from nebraska to yield. mr. johanns: i will. the presiding officer: the senator. mr. udall: the senator from nebraska has talked about the rules not being able to be changed because internally in the senate rules, there is a provision that says you need a supermajority, two-thirds of the senate to change the rules. so this is the proposition that we are hearing argued by many senators that we're changing the rules to break the rules. breaking the rules to change the rules. we have heard that repeated several times over and over again on the senate floor. now, the other side of the argument, as the senator i think well knows since he worked up here and was around and saw senator bird, is that the constitution is superior to the senate rules, and the constitution specifically says that article 1, section 5, that each house may determine the rules of its proceedings, and statutory production applied to that means simple majority, determine the rules of its proceedings. this is a standard interpretation construction, and we know that supermajorities are

york. in new mexico it's 100 to 153. the takers outdo the makers anymore and what's going to happen is people are going to start living small, less money going to government. my dad started in 1980. the government was taking in $500 billion. after he left the government was taking in almost a trillion dollars in revenue. the problem has always been a spending problem. many people understand that, washington still wants to argue and fight about it. megyn: 2011, perhaps not coincidentally had the lowest birth rate in the united states on record. they say that is linked to how optimistic people feel. michael reagan, always great to get your perspective, thank you for being here, sir. alarming new developments in syria raising questions about possible u.s. military action in the middle east. we'll explore. plus a horrifying scene caught on camera. how a random encounter with a stranger ended in the death of a new york city man. >> i heard people yelling. the train came to an abrupt stop. that's when i heard a man was hit by a train. megyn: new jersey governor chris christie telling fem

's shocking and, again, like i have lived in new york and california most of my life. i was raised in new mexico and certainly a lot of people there still do feel that way and i do forget there are so many parts of our nation that feel that way and i think a lot of it is really lack of knowledge. >> something extraordinary happened on tuesday as voters in colorado and washington state said yes to legalizing marijuana for recreational use. it's a stunning move. >> when you last did an interview with this show, larry king was the host. >> yeah. >> and you admitted to him halfway through that you were actually high at the time, you had infused yourself of some marijuana. so i've got to ask you the question, have you come similarly infused today? >> what's today? >> it can be any day you like. >> did you wake up this morning and have a quick, you know? >> i probably did, i probably did, if i remember. you know, that short term stuff. >> do you take a lot of it? >> i think some people have more tolerance, you know, for smoking pot than others and i know people that can take one hit and just go
into new mexico. then as we go through friday afternoon, maybe a shower or storm. dallas, san antonio to houston. west coast also a little damp. then the weekend forecast, as i mentioned, east coast, you look really nice on saturday. it's sunday that that storm that's up there for chicago and minneapolis saturday, that heads through the great lakes and then goes to the east coast. overall, though, doesn't look like any big snowstorms. even that storm i was talking about for tuesday on the east coast next week, just a big rain and windmaker for new england. it's tough to get snow this time of year. ski resorts are hurting. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. honey... ya? you notice something different about these toys? the prices are so low. are we dreaming? i got an idea. kick me in the shin. if i feel it, we know the prices are real. yep, they're real. we've got more rollbacks on toys all december. wait, was that real?

there. in a moment, a new scheme to try to get weapons off the streets of mexico. >> but first, a look at some other stories making news. at least two people were killed and 10 injured when a plane made an emergency landing in burma. authorities say foreign tourists were on board the aircraft. the plane came down in burma and reportedly missed the runway due to heavy fog. >> two fires in the philippine capital have left at least eight people dead. one broke out in a row of old apartments. seven people died after the blaze trapped them in that building. elsewhere, a fire in a slum left about 2000 families homeless. one man was killed there in riots that erupted after the blaze. >> and indian policeman has died from injuries he sustained during anti-rape protest in delhi. the officer was cremated with full state honors. he was one of dozens injured in violent protests triggered by the gang rape of a student. witnesses say he was severely beaten and pelted with stones. >> venezuelan officials say that president hugo chavez's health is improving. supporters attended service in caracas to p
that was looking at suspiciously large movements of money between new york and mexico. as they moved through that, they kept looking and kept opening doors and frankly in finding new problems. for example, at one point they realized that the bank branch in mexico had a location in the cayman islands where there on paper $2.1 billion worth of accounts for tens thousands of customers. that branch had no staff and had no office. and no one knew really who that money belonged to. >> woodruff: and the culpability inside h.s.b.c., devlin barrett, is it known who knew and how high it went? >> part of why the settlement was so large is because there was an electronic trail of all the internal warnings that went on. at one point one compliance officer claimed, what is this the school of low expectations banking? we know how this movie ends and it ends badly. and those warnings kept going up. they kept getting ignored. that's what the electronic records show. since this whole thing has come to light a lot of the senior leadership has changed out. there are new people in place. they've hired some pretty sen
of new mexico and merkley and harkin of iowa all have ideas out there that don't have balance and don't provide enough rights for the minority power to make it plausible. >> i would say first look at the proposal that carl levin put out at the end, a few months ago. it's in the record. you will see it. as a starting point but it's something that had been discussed in a bipartisan way in the senate rules committee through several hearings on the filibuster over the last couple of years. chuck schumer, the chairman of the committee, lamar alexander, the ranking republican, and others are least talked about the idea of a trade off, limiting filibusters on the motion to proceed in return for some guarantee of amendments. and senator levin's proposal is fairly specific and how that could work. i think you could use that as a starting point and then maybe agree to some of the changes. and that would be very much like what happened in 1975. it was part of the agreement was that they put in rule five for the first time. it had never been there. okay, came this close but we're not going to do.
